viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria. centrally involving the attempted christmas bombing in the united states, before we get to it, i want to give you some of my own thoughts about that attempted terrorist attack. senator dianne feinstein says that she believes the united states government should overreact rather than underreact to these kinds of events. isn't that exactly backwards? the purpose of terrorism is not to kill the few hundred that are attacked. but to terrorize the tens upon tens of millions who watch. terrorism is unique as a military strategy and that it depends for its effectiveness on the response of the society. for it to work all of us have to respond with fear and hysteria. so far we are doing just that. i don't meaning to suggest by this that the system worked. obviously it didn't. when u.s. officials got information from the terrorist's father they should have immediately checked if he had a visa and hut him on a no-fly list and not allowed him to enter an airplane with a bomb, makeshift bomb. these are all mistakes and should be fi

barrier, for these issues. in the united states we have the high-paying jobs here in the united states. host: how can this be done? caller: i am not certain about how you can do this. it seems that corporate america would rather pay the lower costs, then keeping the labor here in the united states. the government may be able to find a way to keep these jobs here in the united states. host: thank you very much. the "richmond times dispatch." they have a report on the comeback of the stock market, and how the seemed unimaginable. that is one take on the economy. baltimore, you are up right now. how are you doing? caller: i would say the number one policy issue for me is afghanistan. and there is the economy and jobs. i have done quite a bit of reading. this is reminding me of vietnam. i think that this is taking so many resources from the country and it will be hard to address any other problem. we are approaching this in the middle east, and this is not helping to solve the problems over there. more money should be devoted to domestic problems. i would like to see a lot done with public
first bill signing as president of the united states, president obama was upholding justice ginsburg's interpretation of the law in the dissent she filed in the 2007 decision. [applause] she once noted that dissents speak to a future age, the greatest dissents do become the dominant view. so that's the dissenter's hope, she said. they are writing not for today, but for tomorrow. and that is exactly what happened in this case. i was serving as the chief of staff to the first lady in the clinton administration when president clinton announced the nomination of justice ginsburg as only the second woman to the highest court. he said at the time that she was brilliant, had a compelling life story whose record was interesting. she was independent, progressive, but we were cheering because she was a champion for women's rights. the justice and i share a very, very dear friend. national public radio's legal correspondent for the supreme court, nina totenberg. nina reminded me that justice ginsburg began her crusade for gender equality in partnership with her husband marty, with whom she shar
-election to the united states senate. on each of these occasions, i have begun my remarks by observing that every important journey in life begins and ends at home. today is no exception. what is different about today, however, is not to announce the beginning of yet another campaign for the united states senate, but rather to announce that after 35 years of representing the people of connecticut and the united states congress, i will not be a candidate for re-election this november. i want to begin these very brief remarks by expressing my deepest gratitude to the wonderful people of connecticut for the remarkable privilege of being elected eight times over the past four decades to our national assembly. you have honored me beyond words with your confidence. let me quickly add that there have been times when my positions and actions have caused some of you to question that confidence. i regret that. but it is equally important that you know that i have never wavered in my determination to do the best job for our state and our nation. i love my job as your senator. i always have, still do. howeve
a series of recalls and stopped the united states sales and production of eight popular models after reports of instances in which the gas pedal became stuck and caused the car to race out of control. >> in developing news, another recall from a japan automaker, honda. laura ingle is live with that. which model are effected? >> we're talking about 646,000 models of the compact car fit. we have a picture to show you. what we're talking about here is the 2007-2008 model. if you have a 2009 or 2010 you're reportedly okay. it's a massive recall that will send a lot of honda owners double checking their make and model. the honored recall involves overheating issues. driver's side master power window switch. it reportedly can overheat causing a fire when it comes into content with excessive liquid. honda says an example would be heavy rain. there have been seven reported incidents. >> shepard: what should owners do if they have a fit? >> keep a close eye on the driver's side door switch. recall is voluntary, we're hearing from honda that drives are not being advised to bring cars to dealer
and reconstruction of how we deliver primary secondary education in the united states. and that's exactly what this panel is going to be discussing. very interesting papers on exactly that point by john chubb and steve wilson. and two inspired discussants. and without further ado, let me just say the presenters have 12 minutes each, the discussants 10 minutes each and if everybody is brisk we will have time for some conversation and discussion. take it away, john chubb. >> good morning. this morning and in the first panel you heard about mostly operational savings. now we're going to switch to the topic of educational opportunities. the country for the last two years has been going through the worst recession since the great depression. and every industry has been under enormous, enormous pressure to change. education is not unique in that regard. i want to start with an example. to illustrate this. the state of hawaii, like many other -- every other state in the nation has been under enormous pressure to try to deal with its budget gaps. it came to the decision last summer that it would balan
to help haiti address its own problems. many haitian americans living in the united states have technical expertise in areas such as agriculture, education, health care and infrastructure and would like to return to haiti to assist their people. my bill creates a mechanism to transfer this knowledge in order to meet the needs and the goals of haiti. beyond that we need to ensure that we find other innovative ways to build human capacity, such through education alex changes, programs like i have proposed and other members, the chirly chisholm act, now more than ever, haiti needs the support of its neighbor to the north. even as we deal with our own problems during these tough economic times, we must not turn a blind eye to the untold human suffering just off our shores. today we express our continued support for haiti, we stand in solidarity with the haitians and the haitian americans who have lost loved ones, with the united states citizens still trapped on the island. we stand in solidarity with the rescue workers who have devoted their time and their treasure to help people they do not
-terror strategy. am i wrong? >> i think it's deeper than that. the united states has a problem. if this was a political matter, then you could have one level of concern. but the fact is that we are in a war, our enemies are clever enough to take haggai nearian, train him in yemen, ship him through amsterdam. our bureaucracy is so lacking in focus that even when this guy's father called the american embassy and warned us specifically about his son, we couldn't find a way to stop him and frankly issue the white house advisor yesterday made no sense when he said there was no smoking gun. we don't have to approve the visa or the flight of every foreigner who wants to come here. the burden of proof ought to be on that person. if somebody's father calls and says, my son has gone radical. i think he may be in a training camp. i think that ought to be a high hurdle for that person to get a visa to the united states or be allowed to fly into this country. >> you know the bureaucracy is always going to screw up. it's just never going to be entirely perfect. and this flight emanating in t
just returned from yemen. you had talks with the president of yemen. is the united states going to have direct involvement there, in other words, troops on the ground or launching strikes from inside yemen? >> well, in fact, you taukd to the yemeni foreign minister, as well, and he was quite clear that yemen does not want to have american ground troops there and that's a good, good response for us to hear, certainly. >> wonderful ground troops there. >> no, of course, we would always want a host nation to deal with a problem itself. we want to help, we're providing assistance so we're going to provide more assistance in the course of this year than we did last year and after i think having zeerode it out back, if you recall, '08. this is an effort that we want to help them to deal with a problem that threatens their very rid of government and their very existence as you know it. >> you talk about providing more aid. from what i can gather, aide w increased by $2 trillion in 2008 and 2010. you said when you were there it was going to double this year or next year. is that going to happe
of those who have been arrested, engaged in or having committed terrorist acts in the united states in the last month were in communication with persons on the internet. they never met the necessarily in person but they were highly influenced by their messaging. i gave a speech about a week ago really defending strongly internet freedom but i also pointed out that the internet is a neutral tool, and increasingly we are having to face, whether it is the u.s., u.k. or yemen, the threats coming from beyond our borders that cannot be, as david said come up ginned on any event in a particular place. it is an accumulation of influences, and i think we have to look more thoughtfully at this and i think there is a role for the free media to play because we need a countermessage to young people, who for whatever reason, seek out these voices of the extremism, and i think that is something that governments need help in doing on both a technological basis and in terms of the media's narrative. >> we will definitely take another question but thank you very much indeed. [laughter] >> on tomorrow
back to them, plus interest. and one caller stated earlier, the banking system of the united states should be a national or federalized system where the people, through government, issues credit to whoever needs it. that way the money stays within the system instead of going through the pockets of private bankers. so it's really a moot point whether he should be replaced or not. it's who's going run the mafia. it doesn't matter. it's still the mafia that's sucking the wealth out of our nation. host: off twitter, someone who identifies himself as c.p., says bernanke is just being scapegoated for congress' mistakes, washington politics as usual, all form and no substance. largo, florida, independent line. frank, go ahead. caller: good morning. i'll have to second the previous caller's assertions there. hl-1207 has 300 sponsors in the house, and s-604, bills to audit the fed, has over 30 cosponsors in the senate. and we need to call our senators to get this audit of the federal reserve. after that, it will be very easy to establish a grand jury, which will have subpoena power and indic
, guatemala and into the united states. these were hazardous journeys. in the introduction you heard some instance there was some 17000-mile journey. one of the ships i'm going to talk about, the golden venture, had been at sea for 120 days by the time the passengers got here. they had been in a hold of the ship for 120 days. that didn't mean anything to me. i didn't give it much thought. 300 people, in a space probably if we started at the shelf there and connected to the wall over there, would be smaller than this base. for 120 days, and i was trying to find historical analogues for other big wedges. i thought what about the mayflower? that came to plymouth with all the pilgrims. in 1620, how long were they a seat? they were at sea for 60 days. and the people on the golden venture for 120. the problem is some of the ships were not seaworthy, and sometimes they would overturn. people would go into debt to pay really enormous fees in order to come here to the united states. in the 1980s, you had to pay a snakehead was $18000. by the 1990s when they start moving people on the boats, the pr
security today but are other countries blowing off new safety measures mandated by the united states? >>> the recent blast of cold weather not just needing an extra jacket or so but led to a bumpy commute around town. we are on pothole pat local and emergency repairs that could impact your ride. fox 5 morning news continues ght now at 6:00. >> thank you for staying with us. it is 6:00 on this tuesday morning, january 5th. a live look at our nation's capitalrom tower cam. it is cold out there. good morning, i'm gurvir dhindsa. >> i'm steve chenevey. we do have one school delay to pass along this morning out in western maryland. garrett county schools or a two- hour delay today. they will be opening a little bit later in garrett county this morning. >> and also bishop ireton school in alexandria is closed today. they don't have any water or heat. cold again today. >> more cold. we've got a cold start to the day. temperatures in the 20s. the difference between this morning and yesterday morning, we see some snow here and there. light snow, nothing to worry about but a few snow showers.
in the wake of this, of course, very frightening event that happened on christmas day in the united states when there was a failed bomb attack. people's nerves are very much on edge. there is also a dark humor that permeates some sectors of society. we've heard of different people making jokes in different airports and it is not a joking matter right now. so we know that these people may have been drinking. they've been arrested. >> excuse me for just a second. sky news is interviewing live. they're the fox news equivalent for london. listen. >> did they, from your viewpoint, make their way directly to that passenger? >> in an instant. it happened straight away. they were very efficient and effective in their arrest. >> what reaction from him when he was made aware of what was happening to him? >> he seemed pretty calm. there was no shouting, no screaming. i think he sort of gave in straight away. >> reporter: you say two arrests were made. did you see the second person being taken from the aircraft? >> i didn't see the second person. i heard that through some other passengers on board. >>
a price for that >> this time they are doing with it 1/6 of the united states' economy giving away not just hundreds of millions, giving away billions year after year to get this mismatched awful piece of legislation through the senate. outrageous. >> sean: what the political consequences? who pays a price for this? >> i think about 2006 the republicans made the mistake of thinking that earmarks weren't going to be a big deal. remember that they passed it over? we had the bridge to nowhere. this is a bill to nowhere because it doesn't get you where you want to be, i coined it. any way, it doesn't get them where they want to be. even speaker pelosi took a shot at the president saying this isn't the bill we thought we were going to get she is going to pass it through any way. >> it is so naked. it is so obvious what is going on. you can't pull the wool over the people's eyes. they noah is going on and who is -- they know what is going on and who is going to pay. >> sean: republicans were up nine points as we begin the new year. we see the president's approval ratings. does this trans
killed on khost, afghanistan, for their service to the united states and for other purposes. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to the rule, the gentleman from texas, mr. reyes, and the gentleman from texas, mr. thornberry, each will control 20 minutes. and the chair recognizes the gentleman from texas. mr. reyes: thank you, madam speaker. i ask unanimous consent that all members have five legislative days within which to revise and extend their remarks on this resolution. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, so ordered. mr. reyes: madam speaker, i yield myself such time as i may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from texas. mr. reyes: on december 30, while many of us were watching football, traveling back from holiday visits with our families or preparing to usher in the new year with loved ones, seven members of the central intelligence agency family had their lives cut short in an attack on forward operating base chapman in khost, afghanistan. this was the deadliest day for the c.i.a. since the bombing of the beirut embassy in 1983. the news of this challengic -- t
interview, the strategy of the united states government is to prevent the president from being overthrown. there's a secessionist movement going on there. internally there's a huge urban youth goal and on top of it, people don't have jobs. yemen is feared to become a failed state like somalia. when you see ohio it's gene graphically positioned between somalia and yemen, it's a vice that the united states just can't let happen. >> all right, so listen, is this a precursor to anything that we should be concerned about, especially as americans? >> i think it is, because what we have right now is really good diplomacy going on because they're trying to establish legitimacy with the government of yemen and with the arab street because these bombings are going to happen, and legitimacy is going to be half the battle. the other part of it is going to be proper target selection of legitimate targets that have had to do with either giving sanctuary to al qaeda or threatening the survival of the state of yemen, and we have to avoid collateral damage in the process. >> ken, what i'm really asking is
it it will get a full patdown before boarding any flight to the united states. laura ingle is live at newark international airport. i was in that airport last night and flying in from the cotton bowl in texas and landed in newark and had no idea what was going on. they took our plane for a couple of hours over to a holding place and when we walked into the airport, laura, you and i travel a lot for business. i have never seen a flood of people in an airport like that in all my born days. it was so cold outside that everybody who needed to be rescreened was let inside and waiting for security. you couldn't move. it was a mess. >>> definitely looked like a night. >> well, i talked so long that we lost our satellite. jinx on you. maybe we will get it right back. the thing with that last night was and we knew it at the time when we landed we went straight to fox news.com and find out, though the pilot didn't know it, fox news.com was telling us that a man had been inside security, many of you probably heard this story but the man was inside the sterile zone and walked outside and came back. peop
has more companies listed on the nasdaq than any other nation in the united states. there are more is really nasdaq companies and japanese come a canadian, british or german or anything. capitalism has not been shown to fail but to work. here in the united states there is a tremendous amount of self pity that is a encouraged by the victim would mentality. one of the things of my radio show michael medved every day we are proud to say i am not a victim. the idea of victimhood suggest this standard of living and the difficulties in choices are lower we cannot live the kind of lives are parents lived and everybody has heard this. it is nonsense. right here in the building we have done terrific work on this and i quote him extensively. if you look at any meaningful measure of living standards, the progress under capitalistic america has been dazzling and unprecedented. options available to people the extended life expectancy or opportunities for college rear at this stage where the majority of american young people in every ethnic group are pursuing some form of post high school gradua
for the american people working in partnership with the president of the united states. >> congresswoman sheila jackson lee. democrat of texas and coming up next is a democrat of california also who dressed in red i that a member of the foreign affairs committee. and congresswoman, if you could stand on the x we would appreciate it. thank you very much. i appreciate that. what is one thing the president said tonight and you disagree with? >> i don't think there was much there that i disagreed with, and you could tell by the way i stood up and cheered. i think it was brilliant because he hit every single issue that concerns all of us across the board. he talked about freezing discretionary funds in 2013. >> and you agree with that? >> and i agreed with that. but he said there are programs we have to continue to see that they are funded. medicare, medicaid, social security. these programs that are the safety net for our country. he talked about the capping student loan fees for payback. he talked about our children being able to go into the community colleges that everyone has a right to good edu
political story here in the united states right now. let's show you the results of this election as we have them right now. almost 100% of the precincts counted, 96%. scott brown, the republican with 52%, martha coakley, the state attorney general, 47%. more than 100,000 vote margin right there. a significant win for scott brown. let's go to john king. he's over at scott brown's headquarters where there are a lot of happy people right now. set the scene for us, john. i assume we're getting ready to hear from the winner of this race. >> reporter: we are waiting to hear from scott brown, a state senator, wolf, who will soon become a republican united states senator from massachusetts, for the first time in 30 years. and scott brown will take a seat held by the liberal ted kennedy for nearly 50 years. that, in itself, a big message from the people of massachusetts tonight. not only to their own leadership here, but to the president of the united states and to the national democratic party. scott brown in a state that barack obama won 14 months ago by 26 points. scott brown ran against the obam
the united states. 10, thou shalt not kill. well, i am speechless, all to your benefit. [laughter] i found myself so transformed by those lines. it was like stepping through a very meticulous mirror. thank you. [applause] >> thank you so much. this is rich material. i'm sorry we have to move rapidly. a minute and a half responses. a few questions i will raise. remember that you will have an opportunity to write down questions for me to raise as well. dr. butts, you're a student at morehouse in the 1960's. you attended some rallies and heard dr. king lecture. it is no wonder that you were deeply moved by his death. what do you find in the contemporary black community of the deep feelings that you have for dr. king? is that shared? is it fading? what is his legacy today in the african-american community? >> i think his legacy is strong, but the deep feeling i stared at that time concerning his life- and-death, i do not believe, except for those in my immediate age range or older or just a bit younger, are shared today. dominik people of all races do not know who dr. the kindle was -- many pe
, whose the commission of the irs, and jefrey zients, our chief performance officer of the united states. here in our nations capital there are a number of ways to advance the ideals and interests of the american people. often is done through congress. but it can also be done through what's called a presidential memorandum, a directive that i get to cabinet secretaries and federal government employees to change how our government works. in a few moments, i will issue one of these directives to help stop government contracts from going to companies that are seriously delinquent in their taxes. this is not simple a matter of signing a piece of paper or taking a bureaucratic act. by issuing this directive, all of us in washington will be required to be more responsible stewards of your tax dollars. all across this country, there are people who meet their obligations each and everyday. you do your jobs. you support your family's. you pay the taxes you will, because it's a fundamental responsibility of citizenship. and yet somehow, it's become standard practice in washington to give contracts
could be about other possible attacks on the united states. and i really believe the president and attorney general holder really should rethink this. they should really rething this rigid commitment to the criminal justice system. after all, this guy came from outside the country. what he was planning was an attack on america. this is a war-like act. he should not be treated like a domestic criminal. >> larry: can you treat someone as a military combatant and then later try them criminally? >> you can do anything you want. the justice department could move him around in all different ways. the reality is in this particular case, he should have been treated as an enemy combatant. after all, the president and the attorney general have authorized military tribunals. now, if you are going to have military tribunals and you're going to try some people in a military tribunal, somebody who comes to the united states with a bomb to blow up an airplane in one of our cities should be treated as a war time criminal, not like a domestic criminal. and that may be an academic dispute for so
in the united states saying he's not guilty. this hour the dramatic scene inside the courtroom as he entered his plea and what comes next. >>> some muslim women say they're being stopped, searchened and even beating an airports sincely because they're wearing head scarves. is it part of the government's official policy? what's going on? >>> the republican national commit aye chairman under fire by members of his own party. they say michael steele needs to muzzle himself. >>> i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> his mug shot has been plastered all over the air waves and internet for weeks. today reporters got a better look at umar farouk abdulmutallab, the man charged with transcribing to blow up a u.s. airliner on christmas. our deborah feyerick was inside the courtroom when he entered the plea. she's joining us live from droimt. describe, deb, what happened. >> reporter: wolf, abdulmutallab walked in very, remember he's suffering lap burns have been detonated the bomb that was hidden in his underwear. he was wearing a white t-shirt and khaki pants, sneakers, his feet were shack
, this is a large community, one of the biggest concentrations of arab americans in the united states here in the detroit area. muslim americans out to say, essentially these acts of what abdulmutallab is accused of doing should not be done in the name of islam. said not in our name. said they were americans if abdulmutallab or people like him wanted to come and kill americans, they should kill them first. >> nbc's john yang. john, thank you very much. if anybody thought you saw a misspelling in the sign. you're right. it does say nigerians support persecution of terrorists, they meant to say prosecution. john, as always, we appreciate it. >> president obama ordered intelligence agencies to take a series of steps designed to streamline sharing of information and avoid the mistakes that led to the christmas day bombing attempt while admitting there is no foolproof way to keep america totally safe. the president said agency reports showed a lack of coordination as well as a failure to connect the dots despite having information needed to stop that plot saying he's not interested in the blame
while we understand politically why the vice president is saying it, i am certain that the united states court of appeals for the district of columbia will affirm the dismissal of those case against the blackwater employees. >> really? i think richard is now with us. richard, weigh in on this. do you agree with that? >> i agree it's politically motivated, fred. put it in perspective, here's united states government decided to appeal the united states' government decision against the misconduct, a penalty imposed by the trial judge to dismiss the case. look, the government is appealing the government's prosecutorial misconduct. just great. >> talk about john edwards. interesting legal woes for him. it really gets complicated. doesn't it? you know already there's a grand jury case or investigation, but might this now be broadened out now that he's admitting to this affair, admitting that he's the father of a child. he has not admitted to the allegations of misuse of campaign funds, which is really at the core of all of this, but i wonder, avery, does the plot thicken because there are his
of the united states of america certainly is very sympathetic to the marxism and communism and he is going to suffer because of that. but for these extraordinary and provides a different genealogy of black power. people like william worthy, richardson who was the activist from cambridge maryland who really was called the leedy general of the civil rights movement who waged an unprecedented struggle in cambridge maryland and 63 and 64 to help desegregate the city, met with attorney general robert f. kennedy to sign a peace accord in the early 1960's but also goes to malcolm x's nov grassroots leadership conference in detroit where malcolm delivers his famous message to the grassroots where he lays out a secular vision of domestic national but also international global political revolution. >> host: you read malcolm x was nothing less than a civil rights era's invisible man. >> absolutely. in the terms of the way which historians view malcolm x, malcolm isn't part of that heroic work of the civil rights movement. he usually only pops up are not 1963, 64 and serves as a foil to dr. king. he's
